"Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta" star Stevie J says he can't be a bad dad -- despite owing more than a million bucks in back child support -- 'cause he loves his kids ... and even buys them expensive kicks.

Stevie was at Mr. Chow in L.A. Tuesday night with partner Joseline Hernandez and one of his adult sons.  The kid showed us how well daddy takes care of him by displaying his Jordans.

The problem ... Jordans don't cut it with the judge, who had Stevie J arrested for being a child support scofflaw. 

But Stevie J says he has a plan to raise the million and a lot more ... and it involves Snoop.
